Bloggers Challenge - Floral Frenzy

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks to everyone who played along with last weeks color challenge, I enjoyed eveyone's take on the challenge!  This weeks challenge is Floral Frenzy.  Use floral paper, create your own flowers, use stamps, the possibilities are virtually endless! 

Using some pieces Unibind sent for their Facebook Craft Challenge, I covered them with Bo Bunny Papers and Tissue Tape, to create an Easel Frame.  I created my own flowers using the Sweet William Stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs, Spellbinders Blossom 3/Foliage Dies and some Bo Bunny papers.


Friends is from the Blessings Collection, stamped in Black Archival.  I embossed the Sweet William blossoms on the backside of the paper used to cover the Unibind piece, then scrunched and pinched them to form the blossom, adding a Websters Pages Sparkler to the center.  To embellish my piece I added some leaves using Spellbinders Foliage Die, Zva Creative Flourish Pearls and Butterflies from the Exotic Butterfly Mini Die. Misting my finished piece with Pearl Glimmer Mist.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Sweet William, Friends
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Versamark, Distress Ink Old Paper
